Religious Bosses
#11
RE: Religious Bosses
I work in a consumer products company as a PMM (product marketing manager). My Director is a catholic and her immediate boss, our VP, is a hardcore fundamentalist. This is one of the reasons I haven't come out at work. I don't want it to color how my work is viewed. It's funny because a lady just asked me last week if I was a believer and I said, well I attend church still with my family but I'm not really convinced that there's much evidence to what is said in the bible, so I attend for the tradition. She was shocked. Oh boy. 

I have three direct reports that are non-believers or Hindu however beliefs have never come up with them. I wouldn't be in a place where I could comment anyway.

question, whats a moonie?

A pseudo-Christian sect who believe the second coming occurred in the person of Reverend Sun Myung Moon, a self-made Korean Media Magnate who proclaimed himself and later his second wife Hak Ja Han the messiah after allegedly meeting God in North Korea shortly before the civil war.

They're a rather funny little bunch; they believe the original sin was Eve fucking Satan and an "energy exchange" which takes place during sex tainting all humanity with demonic bad Karma, they also believe Jesus "failed" and he shouldn't have died on the cross. They also don't call God God, but "Heavenly Parents" and believe Moon and Hak Jan represented the ideal couple, despite the fact he was a known manwhore and had been known to grant "salvation" to pretty female believers if they gave him a blowjob and swallowed. I'm not making that up. What they're most famous for though is mass weddings where Moon and now Hak choose peoples spouses and marry them all at once, all of them ideally being from different countries to encourage the production of mixed race children who are seen to embody a united humanity.

Hak is still alive and arguably more powerful than her husband ever was, she doesn't rear her head very often since her husband damaged the Church's reputation in the western world during the 80's but she inherited almost all of Moons business empire and owns several American media outlets like Washington Post. Several Korean premiers have been members of the Unification Church and Moon and Hak have been known to order their members to campaign politically for their favored candidates in different countries, they actually got in big trouble for this in the US when they ordered their minions at their peak of membership to campaign for and vote for Ronald Regan.

Sorry, sidetrack there Tongue  Couldn't resist, I find them fascinating considering their dramatic claims and incredible success story. The Unification Church is essentially the tool Moon used to create a colossal business empire building everything from TV's to guns, and it's still expanding thanks to his believers.


I've heard there was a brownout in Hell when Rev. Moon passed away a few years ago.  Getting enough heat to appropriately roast him was a real challenge for
Satan, and for several days, billions of the damned had to make do with less than infinite torment until the demons were able to stoke the fires sufficiently to meet the demand.

Even Hell has energy problems . . .

Bold mine.

You mean to say The Washington Times, I think.

You're absolutely right, my bad it is the Washington Times. They actually run quite a wide range of businesses, everything from universities to teabags.

 Just a few lists of their holdings, there's probably more they own held under other names.

I'd rather have had a religious boss than the alcoholic one . .

Never had the dubious pleasure of working for some religious person. Outside of religious institutions like churches, certain retirement homes and certain hospitals they're pretty hard to find hereabouts anyway.

Come to think of it, when I was much younger and still attending university I worked as a tour guide at our local monastery, which has a very long history, starting out as a Roman military base. Even they didn't ask me if I believed.

They probably assumed it was a given that you did

For me, it would depend on all of the particulars.  I could imagine getting along very well with an alcoholic boss.  He or she might be paying for drinks during business meetings.  I could see that improving my day.

I don't see any advantage to having a religious boss.

Of course, either one could be nasty, and the two are not mutually exclusive.
